A number of methods may be used to indicate course completion for participants. On the course, a completion block or progress bar may be visible to the right of the screen that provides this information. Often the course facilitator/trainer will provide specific information regarding completion requirements within the course.

Your Dashboard will also show completions. You will find the link to your dashboard under the collapsible menu button near the top-left of your browser window (circled in red below):

Check that 'Past' is selected in your Course overview, Your completed courses will indicate they are 100% complete.

You can also change between 'List' view and 'Card' view.

It may take upwards of 10-15 minutes for the completion status to be updated.

Not all courses will have Course Completion enabled. Contact the course facilitator/teacher if you require further details.

Course completions that have an EBS identifier are reported to EBS once a week. The report is generated on Monday evenings and is usually uploaded to EBS over the next day or two.

Courses completed after the Monday evening cut-off won't be reported to EBS until the following week. The day on which the course is completed will be the date on the EBS record.

Note: Not all courses in BOM Learn have an EBS identifier. Contact the course facilitator/teacher if you require further details.
